Motivational Interviewing (MI) is a collaborative counselling approach to join with, guide and enhance motivation in individuals who are ambivalent about changing. When practiced with proficiency, MI impacts behaviour change and positive treatment outcomes across a range of target issues (for example, addictions and mental health, treatment retention and outcomes, chronic disease management, and more), settings (such as public health, primary and tertiary care, counselling, criminal justice, child protection), and interprofessional providers. The principles of partnership, unconditional acceptance, accurate empathy, autonomy support and compassion are fundamental to MI making MI highly complementary and consonant with cross-disciplinary health and allied health values and ethics. Participants will leave this dynamic and practical session with a renewed and deepened understanding of how to enhance clients’ motivation for change and foster trust and collaboration, within a climate of acceptance and compassion.
